WESTMINSTER, Md. – Catholic jumped out to a 27-0 lead en route to a 48-16 win over McDaniel in non-conference football action on Saturday.

Derrick Miles (Glen Mills, Pa./Bayard Rustin) led the Green Terror (0-1) on defense with a career-best 12 tackles while Erik Klugh (Millersville, Pa./Penn Manor) chipped in 11 tackles – all solo stops. Mike Cousar (Easton, Pa./Easton) added 10 tackles and also caught an 18-yard pass off a fake punt in the fourth quarter.

Joe Rollins (Temple Hills, Md./Surrattsville) led the offense with 118 yards on 22 carries, leaving him 20 yards shy of second place on the program's all-time list. He also had both touchdowns. Ryan Yamada (Brookeville, Md./Good Counsel) went 17-for-41 for 218 yards.

Michael Pitzenberger led the Cardinals (1-0) with 179 rushing yards on 28 carries. Evan Calvo also reach the 100-yard mark on 20 carries.

After the teams exchanged punts to open the game, TJ Tutone capped an 11-play, 90-yard drive with a 13-yard scamper into the end zone. A botched snap on the extra point kept it a 6-0 game with 7:32 to play in the first quarter.

E.J. Montgomery pushed the lead to 13-0 later in the quarter, capping a 77-yard march that took 11 plays and 3:36 with a 13-yard run of his own.

Nick Cortese punched the ball in on fourth-and-goal from inside the one-yard line to make it a 20-0 game with 11:41 to play in the second quarter.

A 39-yard connection from Montgomery to John Serdakowski made it a 27-0 game midway through the period.

The Green Terror moved inside the 10-yard line on its next possession but the drive stalled and the hosts had to settle for a Bill Castor (Morrsiville, Pa./Conwell-Egan Catholic) 27-yards field to get on the board with 3:24 showing.

Tutone found Andrew Oullette on a seven-yard touchdown to make it a 34-3 game 1:34 before the intermission.

A methodical 12-play, 46-yard drive resulted in a Montgomery-to-Tucker Hubbell three-yard touchdown to make it a 41-3 game with 5:05 showing in the third quarter.

The Cardinals tacked on seven more on its next possession to make it a 48-3 game going to the fourth quarter.

On the first play of the fourth quarter, Rollins ripped off a 30-yard run for the first touchdown of the season, cutting the deficit to 48-10 just 11 seconds into the period.

A direct snap to Mike Oliveto (Robesonia, Pa./Conrad Weiser) on fourth-and-8 from the Catholic 37 resulted in an 18-yard completion to Cousar to move the chains.

Five plays later, Rollins found the end zone again for the 48-16 final.

Oliveto also caught four passes for 58 yards. Rollins had five catches out of the backfield for 36 yards.
